There is a heart that beats in the heart of Rome, as Antonello Venditti sang. The heart that beats is that of a charming hôtellerie with a fascinating and unique history: Donna Camilla Savelli. A story that began in 1642, when Duchess Camilla Virginia Savelli, a Roman noblewoman and wife of Pier Francesco Farnese, commissioned the illustrious architect Francesco Borromini to design a nunnery for the Augustinian nuns. So it was that in the heart of Trasteverine Rome, a stone's throw from the Janiculum, the monastery of Santa Maria dei Sette Dolori, with adjacent church, was born. Today this majestic building, thanks to a skilful restoration work, houses a luxury hotel that is one of the most exclusive and sought after wedding venues in the capital. Celebrating the "yes" day in this prestigious residence, in fact, is like embarking on a real journey through history and Baroque art: from the monumental marble staircase that leads to the upper floors to the impressive eighteenth-century fountain that dominates the entrance hall of the ancient refectory, up to the seventeenth-century oils that embellish and enhance the elegant and exclusive rooms. For the wedding reception, Donna Camilla Savelli Hotel will surprise the bride and groom with its wide choice of spaces available, to live the most beautiful and important day of life with glamour.
Starting with the reception room par excellence of the Hotel: the spectacular Gran Sala Borromini, the ancient refectory of the convent that can accomodate up to 130 guests and represents the ideal setting for a sumptuous and regal banquet thanks to its Renaissance paintings, the 18th century walnut seats and the coffered wooden ceiling. These elements will turn the "yes" day into a daydream. The romantic Terrazza Savelli overlooking the rooftops of the Eternal City is the unmissable setting for a refined welcome cocktail, an elegant buffet dinner or the fateful cutting of the cake and the final Jordan almonds. A unique setting, which from sunset will give guests the privilege of a breathtaking scenery: Rome painted by its own lights. While the wonderful Giardino Agrumeto, with its fruit trees and fragrant flowers, is the perfect location for a high-class summer reception. The enchanting Grotta Romana, finally, will offer the bride and groom and their guests the chance to experience the magic of a buffet or an after-dinner ball wrapped in a fascinatingly ancient aura. Donna Camilla Savelli, a unique and exclusive place for top level events in the heart of the most beautiful city in the world.
